Kirkmeyer B-Roll

  • Barb Kirkmeyer has spent her entire career in public office supporting American energy workers and American energy independence and she’ll do the same thing in Congress.
  • Barb Kirkmeyer knows inflation is hurting Colorado working families and will work to reduce the cost of living by cutting runaway government spending and reining in costly regulations that drive up energy, health care, and housing costs.
